Polaris Bios Editing ( RX5xx / RX4xx ) - Page 95

post #941 of 3382
Well figured out my bios issue sort of. Not sure why but there must have been an issue in the Display driver. After using DDU and then reinstalling the drivers everything is working fine now. Thanks anyways.
post #942 of 3382
Hi everyone! I am an FNG to forums and how do they really work, anyways i really need your help with this one and this page seems to be full of knowledge, i recently got my rx480 nitro + oc 8gb version, i am fairly happy, until yesterday when i try to update from AMD Crimson 16.10.3 to 16.11.1 and somehow the Boost vbios was corrupted and my PC wouldn't even boot on the Boost vbios when i restarted the PC to apply the driver update since i always use DDU to update drivers, whoever i got it to work making a backup of my silent mode vbios and flashed in the Boost vbios using atiflash on the CMD, and the GPU actually works but only with two silent mode vbios settings LOL, i tried to flash the Boost Vbios that is on techpowerup vga bios collection just to find out it doesn't work at all, i noticed that the backup i made using atiflash was 512kb and the ones on techpowerup are 256kb maybe thats why doesn't work but i am not sure since i only yesterday i forced myself to learn the very basics of atiflash and well, thing is i wanted to ask some nice people here if they had the same SKU as mine so they can make a Backup the boost vbios with atiflash and send it to me, i will really appreciate any help, thank you very much.

This is my validation file i just need a backup from the original boost mode or vbios mode, made with atiflash (e.g backup.bin 512kb)

please help me.

i have the same card, Once I get home I will dump my clean bios and upload it for you.


I was also wondering if somebody was able to modify my bios, I have used the bios editor for what I could, timings, TDP, Power limit, but was hoping somebody would be able to modify the max input voltage. Currently it's a limit of 1.256v, which is ok for 1490-1510, depending, but as I have a water block on it, I would like a little more power, 1.45-1.55v would be great, as it should allow me to run a stable well over 1510, and really see how far I can push this card. 1510mhz @ 1.256v running around 48c under heavy load, curious how high it can clock with more voltage available to it.

Cheers
Jeb


Link to bios


@DsLiadz You can use this bios, although please keep in mind that it is modified, but a clean dump. TDP increased to 250w, power limit to 75, and ram timings are modified, 1625 @ 1750 and 1750 @ 2000+

Jeb you are a legend man, still i am gonna try it, does it has some benefit to gaming the modified timings?, thing is my stock vbios got corrupted don't know how i was upgrading to crimson 16.11.1 when this happened and i only use msi afterburner just only this time i used the trixx software to change the LED and to create a custom fan curve since MSI AB wasn't really applying the fan curve well, i never thinker with this sort of things on my gpu because the lack of knowledge, any way i just flashed and it booted well, i am gonna game for a while, and again man, i really appreciate your help, i was looking for a bios backup like crazy all over the internet, thumb.gifthumb.gifthumb.gif

I find timings will help more in FPS in some benchmarks than clock speed (to a point), tighter the clocks, the lower the latency. Now, you will likely not be able to hit higher than 2100 ram speed stable with these timings though, but should still be faster than 2250 at stock timings.

Forgot to mention in the original post, the max ram speed is also raised, so I believe it's set to 2400.

Thought I lost the files, turned out I had them, here is the link to both banks, quiet and OC mode.

Oh damn man, you are truly helpful, i thought i was done for, but now i can have my gpu the way it was, i was about to RMA it but since i opened up the gpu to change the thermal paste i voided my warranty way to early, i might give it a go on Bios modding, but i have tons of info to read on the matter, i love to learn new things, and this looks like a place full of knowledge and capable people, again man, thanks a lot. thumb.gif

Changing the thermal paste should definitely not void your warranty. As long you dont cut into anything, physically modify the card, as long as you can put stock cooler and have it in a complete package, you should be fine. Mine didn't even have any security stickers over screws. You can mess your card up much more with bios flashing than replacing the toothpaste they put on with actual thermal paste.

Yeah the card looks fine, no damage whatsoever or stickers, and yes the stock thermal paste is not that terrible but it seems to be low-mid tier, anyway i just flashed the bios and i got this error tho, maybe some error on the bios or the drivers? anyway it goes away when i manually punch the number onto the core clock on msi but it only works if it is a number lower or higher than 1342.

Run DDU, uninstall afterburner, reboot, then install drivers + afterburner.

I found that every time i changed the bios it would freak out Wattman or Afterburner, power limit was not seen until i did that. Maybe it's just that.

Curious, are both your banks modified? If you still have at least one stock bank, boot on that bank, open ATI Flash, change the bios bank, then flash again. Always good to have one bank you mess with and another that is stock. Last thing you want is to be stuck between a rock and a hard place, needing another GPU to flash.
